Additional WEEE compliance services
Over and above our standard WEEE compliance service, we offer support bundles to help you resolve issues that are specific to your organisation or the industry in which you operate.
Typically these are scoped when you join our membership scheme but in some cases they will be one-off projects, which we can help with too.
Our additional services include:
With 14 categories to choose from and nine alone for ‘small mixed EEE’, categorisation can be quite a resource intensive exercise. We can handle all of this for you, creating relevant databases and ensuring that all your data is as accurate as it can be – so you don’t pay over the odds to comply through a simple categorisation error.
It is not unusual for internal methodologies to be stored in the heads of key people, causing real difficulties when people change roles and responsibilities. It also makes it difficult to improve and refine processes.
Starting with an audit, we will produce a detailed methodology working with key personnel, which can be referred to when needed and it demonstrates that all important transparency to the EA.
The EA likes to conduct an audit of all producers every three years so the chances are you will have to go through an audit at some stage.The good news is we’ve had lots of practice and can guide you through the process and save you a few sleepless nights.
We can prepare your presentation, attend on your behalf, answer questions as your representative or simply be at the end of the phone, providing guidance to ensure you’re fully prepared, ahead of the day.
If your data is inaccurate you may well be paying more than you should be to comply with the WEEE regulations. So it pays to audit your systems, databases and procedures to check that all is in order, fulfilling your requirement to ‘provide data that is as accurate as reasonably possible’.
While lobbying services are included in your membership fee, there are occasions where our clients would like us to represent them on an industry specific working group or association.
We are one of only a handful of environmental compliance schemes to offer multi-regulation capability. By handling these under one roof, we can operate more efficiently and pass on the cost-savings to you so why not consider consolidating your schemes into one.
Manufacturers, importers and distributors are banned from placing on the EU market new EEE containing more than the agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) flame retardants.
In 2015 four additional substances were added to RoHS, coming into effect between 22 July 2019 – 2021: Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
We can work with you to ensure that you are meeting compliance with these regulations for any EEE that you are placing on the market in the EU through establishing due diligence processes to minimise risk of non-compliance.
